Mendota County Park - Accessible Fishing & Boating Improvements

Property: Mendota County Park
Project Status: Complete
Project Schedule: Completed 2021

Dane County Parks is replacing a wooden retaining wall, repairing the seawall and implementing the second phase of pathway improvements along the lagoon which is a popular shore fishing location. Phase 1 of the seawall and pathway improvements were completed in 2014 with electrical upgrades for boat camping. Pathway improvements were recommendations of the 2016 Master Plan to improve accessibility throughout the park.

Dane County Parks is partnering with the Foundation for Dane County Parks, Madison Fishing Expo, Wisconsin Fishing Expo, and Access Ability Wisconsin to develop system-wide improvements at county lake access sites. Improvements will create and enhance access to fishing and boating opportunities for all ages and abilities. For more information about the partnership project including additional project locations please visit the Accessible Fishing & Boating Improvements webpage.
